STUDENTS OF SOS-HGIC started this petition to SOS HGIC SMT

The SOS HGIC SMT needs to remove First Semester Examinations for the leaving year group (IB2). This is because IB2 students spend more time working on externally moderated assignments such as EE's and IA's and in the end they are expected to write examinations they are not prepared for. The school has raised concerns on students not putting enough time in these externally moderated courses and yet they expect students to write examinations whilst having to submit externally moderated assignments before and after these exams. As such a large majority of students do not do well in these exams. Rather than having exams teachers should work with students by having more time to practice exam style questions with them, have enough time to teach them how to efficiently tackle issues they usually come up with during the mock examinations and final IB exams and guide them in improving the quality of their externally moderated assignments rather than letting them submit whatever they feel needs to be submitted because of a deadline.  It should not be a  school mentality to undertake the traditional style of exam writing after during the first semester of IB2  rather is should be a more intuitive approach to helping students get the best possible grade on their externally moderated assignments as well as arriving at the best solution to improve the grades of students in their final IB exams.
